Went to the city museum today and must admit I did not know what to expect but found the exhibits very interesting. A temporary exhibition only had Croatian signage but the remainder (majority) of the museum had both Croatian and English explanations. Many interning objects to look at as the history of Zagreb and information on the history of Croatia... More

An excellent overview of the cultural, artistic, economic and political history & development of Zagreb, stretching from Neanderthal prehistory to the Roman Era to the present. I found the exhibits on medieval Gradec and Kaptol, as well as the history of Poor Clares and the renovation of the Zagreb Cathedral to be particularly interesting. My only complaint is the dearth...

This museum is spacious and interesting with many exhibits in, you can see and experience the entire history of the City of Zagreb and the Croatian but. The only drawback is that there are no special facilities and programs, and it after a visit there is no need to visit multiple

I am not big on Museums but I was definitely taken back with the history of this country and its people. Definitely worth going to experience the culture and the magic of Croatia.

Our family enjoyed this chronological history of Zagreb with many excellent artifacts ranging from about 500 AD to 1990s. You do need the headsets to really understand the history...the descriptions are a little long winded so we just listened to the first minute or so for each highlight. One of the best options in Zagreb.

One of my favorite museums in Zagreb. Get entangled in the city history and medieval times, check out some guns, swords and armor, take a peek at torturing devices and by all means enjoy a great walk in the old part of town. Will visit again for sure, defo recommended for travelers and inhabitants!

This was a great opportunity to see signs of centuries of history of this great country which was exposed by several invasions without losing their roots and resulting in a special culture.

This museum is comprised of several buildings some of which appear to date to the 18th century and there are under ground basement structures that are open and look even older. In any event it first seems to be a small museum but the it turns into a series of enfiladed rooms filled with all sorts of objects and items... More
